New York: Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., backed by the American Values 2024 Super Pac, plans a tour to kick off this Tuesday, December 12, in the state where his father campaigned by train in 1968, weeks before winning the Nebraska Democratic primaries.


The journey begins this Tuesday in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and will end in Omaha. It is expected to stop in Fremont, Schuyler, Columbus, Grand Island, Kearney, Lexington, North Platte, Ogallala, Sidney, and Kimball. He separately visited Chadron and then stopped in Hastings. In the state where his father campaigned by train in 1968, weeks before winning the Nebraska Democratic primaries.


Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has to gather at least 2,500 valid signatures from registered voters to appear on the presidential ballot for the 2024 general elections in Nebraska.
Nebraska awards two electoral votes to the winner of the statewide popular vote for president and one vote to each of the winners in each of the three congressional districts in the state.

In 2020, the electoral vote from the second congressional district based in Omaha went to Biden, and the other four went to the then-president Donald Trump.
The same division occurred in 2008 when U.S. Senator Obama became the first Democrat to win an electoral vote in Nebraska since Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Nebraska and Maine are the only states that split their votes, and conservative lawmakers have proposed returning to the “winner takes all” approach.

Facing the refusal of the National Democratic Committee, Bobby Kennedy felt compelled to declare himself an independent candidate on October 9 in Philadelphia, PA. That’s why, this time, he is not presenting himself next week in Nebraska as a presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, as his father, former U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, did, where he had won the primaries for that party.

Although Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is gaining supporters from both the Democratic and Republican platforms, some opinion circles believe that his independent candidacy could harm Biden and benefit Trump, but this is untrue. Bobby is working solely to expand his independent platform.

The latest poll forecasts indicate that Kennedy could be included on the ballots of all 50 states; therefore, the American Values 2024 Super Pac is investing 15 million dollars in the ten electorally most relevant states, accumulating 50% of the total voter universe. These states are Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, New York, and Texas.

Robert Kennedy Jr., far from harming either political platform, could become the electoral surprise of the moment because the rejection rates for both Biden and Trump indicate that Americans do not accept that the establishment has chosen two octogenarians as the country’s only two electoral options.
